Stand Up for Israel: A news video explainer about the crisis

05/11/21: Watch my interview on the News Forum to understand how and why events have unfolded into a crisis situation in Israel. It began with violent Palestinian rioting in Jerusalem and turned into a war with Hamas.

In this video, I ask the Canadian government to stand with Israel by deflating extremism. I also ask Canadians to look through media bias and recognize that Israel is a democratic state that is defending itself against terrorism.

This is a great explainer video. Please feel free to forward widely.
